The entire meeting was spent helping Thad get his Battery Management System (BMS) working and talking to all his batteries. Thad’s BMW has 6 strings of Lithium batteries. Two of the strings are located in the front of the car; the other 4 strings are in the rear of the car under the floor of the trunk. At the beginning of the meeting, the BMS was only talking to two battery strings. At the end of the get-together, all batteries and strings were talking to the BMS.
